This is related to issue25063 (https://bugs.python.org/issue25063).

Trying to use sendfile internally in shutil.copyfileobj was considered risky because of special Python files that expose a file descriptor but wrap it to add special behavior (eg: GzipFile).

I believe such risk does not exist for shutil.copyfile, and it would be possible to use sendfile if available.
